Keytar Bear: Star of mobile game

Keytar bear

BosBattle reports on how our own Keytar Bear became a character in a phone game produced by a Sega subsidiary that is based in Cambridge.

One key(tar) difference between real life and the game: In the game, Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire, he plays a taxi driver, rather than Boston's furriest street musician.

Good news for people who fix broken screens in malls in New Hampshire, too, when the awful people who have attacked him inevitably, instinctively break their phones when he pops up.

If he hasn’t signed a contract, a lawsuit for use of name and likeness is the same for any public figure, from Prince and Hendrix to Keytar Bear. Get a lawyer! Here’s hoping he’ll get the money while he’s alive. That’s VIDEO GAME money, son!

The interviewer asks about that. Click the first link in the original post, and scroll down a bit for the answer.

I hope the game's theme music is a Keytar tune.

The person who made that graphic has clearly never looked closely at a keyboard.

WILL: Yeah. We worked with Keytar Bear to make sure he was happy with our portrayal [editor’s update: Will said in a follow-up email that Keytar Bear was paid for his likeness]. (Though we didn’t talk to his keytar – you might notice that the pattern of white/black keys is a little off.)
